Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation announced the opening of its new call center and the creation of 150 new jobs in Stevens Point. Governor Walker and Mayor Halverson also spoke.
Great Lakes selected the Stevens Point community for its new office after an extensive search, and is in the midst of hiring professionals who share its belief in the value of higher education.
To date, Great Lakes has filled 23 positions, from managers and supervisors to call center representatives. These employees are occupying a temporary space until Great Lakes can move into its permanent 20,758-square-foot property in downtown Stevens Point. The new call center, located in the former Dunham’s Sports property at 1101 CenterPoint Drive in Stevens Point, is currently undergoing renovations, and is expected to be fully operational in April.
Governor Scott Walker joined Mayor Andrew Halverson and Great Lakes executives in Stevens Point on December 18 to discuss the positive impact the new office will have on education and economic development in the community.
